About two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being invited for the second time (my first time was back in January 2013) to the very well known #Firenze4Ever event put together by the italian luxury retailer, Luisa via roma, which takes place in Florence. I was beyond thrilled to be asked to be a part of this years 9th Edition called “It’s Magic BRAZIL”, where everything was about color, life, prints, vibrant looks, texture and everything else in between.

Firenze4Ever is a bi-annual event (one in January and the other in June) where 35 international influencers/bloggers get invited to attend the 3-day trip and enjoy themselves over fancy dinners, drinks, music, amazing clothes, special treats and more! Most importantly, the event is for each influencer to style themselves or a model in Luisa via roma’s newest collection to help showcase what’s new and shoot photos around Firenze wearing these pieces. It’s a pretty fun and amazing event, I must say!

So, here is my first look out of two for my Style Lab photoshoot! This stunning Proenza jacket was the right touch to toughen up this look. Now- let’s focus on the print of this dress for a second, shall we? The stunning print and use of colors made it easy for me to make it the center piece of my look. It’s definitely something a little different than what you’re used to seeing me in since I don’t really wear long flowy dresses!

Hope you enjoy this look and photos that are all the way from Florence! Ciao! firenze4ever2firenze4ever15firenze4ever10firenze4ever13firenze4ever9 firenze4ever1firenze4ever18
